New DNS record for external website

Due to our network configuration, users cannot access our external website via it's external ip address.

However, they can via the local IP of the server in the DMZ.

I want to add a new DNS record to redirect requests for www.mycompanyname.co.uk to the internal IP - please can someone tell me where in DNS I need to do this.

Note: the website name is not the same as our domain name, so there will e no conflicts there.

Just add a primary zone for mycompanyname.co.uk in your DNS server and add a host record with the internal ip for the www host www.mycompanyname.co.uk. I think that will do the trick. Another solution is to change the hosts file on each workstation... which i think might be a bit painful...

Clarification: By primary zone i mean a forward lookup zone.
